As CEO of my last company, I architected the transition to a entirely cloud-based infrastructure to reduce costs, improve security, increase uptime and leverage consumerization of enterprise IT.
I recommend Levi without hesitation, and especially applaud his ability to manage business processes. His expertise, focus, and creativity under pressure have made him a tremendous business partner.
Levi has worked with me or for me for 8 years. Over this length of time you see a person's character and abilities under every type of circumstance. His business and legal expertise have been a cornerstone of our company's continued growth. It is a pleasure to endorse him without reservation.
Levi has an incredibly powerful mix of skills: Amazing attention to details, with a deep knowledge of technology, especially cloud technologies. He is a visionary leader in deploying cloud technologies within a small business setting.
Levi is everything that a LinkedIn recommendation should say. He is detail oriented, very professional, and has an exceptional ability to execute on an idea worth pursuing. But if you really want to know why anyone should want to do business with Levi, it is because he makes it fun. Even if Levi helps someone understand that "This (idea, job, or business) is just not going to work.", somehow he makes it fun. Maybe he will work in a story about nearly being killed by an exotic African animal (true story) or being knocked unconscious getting thrown into a bed of cactus (true story). The point is, business can be a drag even if you love it. Levi inspires people to remember the dreams they had and helps make them a reality. What more could you ask for in a person, I mean this seriously. If you want to have fun doing business, ask Levi.
Levi is one of most gifted business minds I have come across. He rapidly understands market dynamics and factors which influence them. I have met few who stay abreast of both latest information as well as technology. His mix of business savy with the ability to implement ideas will no doubt benefit anyone in association with him.
I have worked for Levi for 5 years. My biggest challenge in writing a review is to decide which superlatives to use. First and foremost, Levi is a man of integrity. He is highly intellectual and inquisitive - always looking to improve the status quo. He sets high standards, both for himself and those around him. A tremendous mentor, wanting everyone at Karis to achieve their potential.
He has a maturity beyond his years, and strives to build strong personal relationships at work - an unusual approach, but highly effective. He always has a strong vision for the future, looking for a path to success, while always thinking about contributing to the betterment of the world.
I wholeheartedly support Levi in his future endeavors.
I have worked with Levi for the last 3 years now and been extremely impressed with his integrity, his ability to see the big picture and the humility with which he carries himself. Levi is a vary dedicated and trustworthy professional who really cares about the people he serves, whether it be customers or employees.
I have worked with Levi for 5 years and he is truly one of the greatest people to have worked for. He is organized, focussed, creative and thinks outside the box. He takes on all challenges with zeal and works to deadlines promptly and reliably. He is a great communicator and manages his team and clients with ease. I cannot recommend him, for any project, highly enough!
Levi is a proven leader and developer of teams that have produced operational and financial results in a changing and uncertain market. He is a servant leader willing and able to articulate a clear vision and strategy, and at the same time, lead the organization from the middle. His integrity and values cause him to stand out from the crowd and his desire for business to serve the common good of the community make him a very attractive partner for many diverse interests. A wise and thoughtful leader beyond his years.
With out question, Levi Smith carries one of the the most well rounded knowledge base of anyone I have worked with. Logic and knowledge backed by heart and integrity make Levi a prolific and dependable resource to many.
There are few times in your working career you have the opportunity to work with leaders who are true change agents at companies. Levi is someone who not only elevates his team members but will push your business to evolve and grow. It is extremely rare to find an individual with strong business acumen, technical prowess, and the persona/temperament to motivate and truly lead a team.
Levi Smith is a rare individual that is hard to convey on paper, a true leader and someone I would liken to a younger Jack Welch.
